What are the signs of gum disease?

The vast majority of Americans – about 80% -- have gum disease in one form or another, but many of them don’t realize it because the initial symptoms are often quite mild. Some of the more obvious signs are bleeding, discoloration of the gums, swelling and tenderness, and gums pulling away from the teeth. If you’re due for a checkup or would like to learn more about our gum disease treatments, please click this link or call us for an appointment.

Should I get dental implants?

Losing a tooth can lead to various oral health problems, but one of the biggest issues they can cause is bone loss in the jaw. Dentures and bridges cannot prevent bone loss on their own, but dental implants mimic real tooth roots and all of their functions, keeping the jawbone strong and your new teeth firmly in place. They’re also extremely versatile and can be used to replace one tooth at a time or an entire arch all at once. Long Family Dental has kept up with the latest dental technologies and techniques that have made dental implant placement a highly reliable procedure.

What if I’m too anxious for dental treatments?

At Long Family Dental, we’re all too familiar with how dental fears can make picking up the phone to schedule an appointment difficult for some patients. Between the amenities in our treatment rooms and our multiple sedation options (including IV sedation for the most extreme cases of dental fear), we can help even the most severely nervous patients enjoy complete relaxation at our dental office.
